AceShowbiz - Camila Cabello makes it clear that she is no fan of body-shaming. Slamming body shamers in a candid new video, the "Havana" hitmaker stressed that she is "grateful" for her "stretch marks and fat."
"I was just running in the park minding my own business trying to be fit, trying to keep it healthy," the 24-year-old musician began telling the viewers in a TikTok post she shared on Friday, July 16. "And I am wearing a top that shows my belly," she said, while pointing the camera down to show her black crop top and light workout pants. "And I wasn't tucking it in, because I was running and existing like a normal person that doesn't tuck it in all the time," she continued with a sarcastic look on her face.
Camila went on to say, "And I was like, 'Damn.' But then I reminded myself [that] being at war with your body is so last season." The former Fifth Harmony member began to embrace her body, "I am grateful for this body that lets me do what I need to do. We are real women with curves and cellulite and stretch marks and fat. And we gotta own that, baby."
Camila then ended her video by singing some of En Vogue's empowering lyrics, "Giving him something he can feel," as she moved her red-polished hand up and down her stomach and chest. The girlfriend of Shawn Mendes captioned the makeup-free clip that has since garnered more than 4 million views, "I luv my body."
Many of her fans and followers praised her inspiring message about self-acceptance in the comment section of the post. A TikTok user wrote, "Yesss Camila! Periodt," while another fan chimed in, "A true role model [love] I love you Camilaaaaa."
"YES MAAM the day people realize we are all human and that there is no such thing as perfect is the day the world changes for good," a follower added. In the meantime, a fan noted, "And the fact that normal bodies like ours attract boys like Shawn Mendes...winning."
